Trey Gowdy to Trump, lawyer: 'When you're innocent . act like it'

The tweets followed a call Saturday for an end to the Mueller investigation by John Dowd, Trump's personal lawyer.

Washington, Mar 18 The probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and allegations of the Trump campaign's collusion with it should never have happened as it is based on a fake dossier, President Donald Trump said today.

On Saturday, CNN learned that Mueller had interviewed former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and asked about the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said during an appearance on CNN.

He went on to pledge to do his part to maintain the independence of Mueller's investigation.

Graham said on "State of the Union" that the Senate Judiciary Committee should hold a hearing on McCabe's firing to "make sure it was not politically motivated". "I see no cause when it comes to Mr. Mueller", Graham said, later adding he believed the Mueller was "doing a good job".

White House legislative affairs director Marc Short said the Trump team was fully cooperating in the Mueller investigation and that the president was expressing his growing frustration with how long the probe has lasted. "So to suggest that Mueller should shut down and that all he's looking at is collusion, if you have an innocent client Mr. Dowd, act like it". Gowdy also spent six years as a federal prosecutor before being elected to Congress. "That is supremely important and it has nothing to do with collusion", Gowdy said. "It was his own fellow bureau agents".

"The only reason Mr. Mueller could ever be dismissed is for cause. If they didn't do anything wrong, why are they going to such extreme lengths to undermine this investigation which is being carried out in a very responsible way", said King. Axios reports the McCabe memos corroborate Comey's account of his own firing.

As a result, Duterte said the worldwide court can never have jurisdiction over him, "not in a million years". Only Burundi underwent the proceedings and became the first nation to leave the global body in October 2017.

"He should've been allowed to finish through the weekend", Rubio said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime".

Republican Senator Jeff Flake, who has criticized Trump harshly, said the president's latest comments appeared to be aimed at the firing of Mueller. I would expect to see considerable pushback in the next couple of days urging the president not to go there. Democrats on the committee rebuked their Republicans colleagues, calling it "premature" to end the probe and vowing to continue investigating.

"Members need to speak out now, don't wait for the crisis", he said.

Mueller's team, which consists of mostly Democrats, have secured indictments against 13 Russian nationals, and former Trump aides Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Flynn, and George Papadopoulos, and two attorneys, Richard Pinedo and Alex van der Zwann.

"We ought to pass those bills now", Durbin said.
